L015477 OFFICER'S VEHICLE PENNANT. (Fahrzeug Luftwaffenwimpel)

BACKGROUND: Personal and Unit command pennants were an old German Army tradition which was continued and expanded during the Third Reich and included new designs and patterns for the fledgling Luftwaffe. Regulations concerning Luftwaffe Personal and Unit command pennants can be found dated as early as January 1935, before the formation of the Luftwaffe was officially announced. The Personal and Unit command pennants underwent numerous minor alterations at various times through-out the war. The Officerís vehicle pennant was introduced on December 27TH 1935 and was originally designated, Dienstwimpel, (Service Pennant), on April 27TH 1937 the designation was altered to Luftwaffenwimpel, (Air Force Pennant). This pattern pennant was utilized by Officerís who were not authorized a command or staff pennant. The pennant was flown from the left front fender of the Officerís official or personal vehicle, when the Officer was uniformed and in the vehicle.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Interesting example that has been converted into a wall hanging. Roughly 29cm x 20cm. Early machine embroidered "Droop tail" eagle. One sided. Wooden dowel and hanging rope/string have been inserted through the bunting. Shows the expected age and use.
